SkinTyte™ treatments are safe for all skin types and can be performed on any area of the body where an improvement in your skin firmness is desired.
The SkinTyte™ procedure is a laser skin tightening treatment that effectively treats sagging skin in various areas of the body. Popular areas include the face, neck, abdomen, knees, thighs, buttocks, and arms. The laser utilises advanced infrared light technology to deeply heat dermal collagen and firm areas with loose or sagging skin. The heat applied to the dermal layer will trigger your body’s collagen to contract and coagulate. This deep heating starts the healing process and stimulates collagen production, tightening your skin immediately, with increased collagen production over the next several months.
As the laser heats the soft tissues, it simultaneously protects the epidermis (top layer of the skin’s surface) with sapphire cooling contact to ensure maximum safety and comfort for the patient during the procedure.
It is not a substitute for a facelift, and recommended for those who desire moderate, noticeable skin improvements without having to undergo a surgery.
What is SkinTyte?
SkinTyte utilises infrared energy to deeply heat soft tissue to cause coagulation that tightens tissue and initiates the body’s natural healing process leading to skin re-modeling and increased firmness. SkinTyte can be provided quickly and comfortably with no downtime. The end result is a more youthful appearance.
Where can SkinTyte treat?
SkinTyte treatments are safe for all skin colours and can be performed on any area of the body where an improvement in your skin firmness is desired. Popular areas include the face, neck, abdomen and arms.
What to expect during treatment?
The SkinTyte light energy is delivered in a sequence of rapid, gentle pulses. There is no need for topical anaesthetic; however, it may be used on more sensitive areas. A series of pulses will be repeated over the treatment area to ensure best results. While the face and neck can typically be treated within 30 minutes, the actual time will depend on the area treated.
What to expect after treatment?
Immediately after treatment you may experience some mild redness in the treated area and this should return to normal within minutes. Since the SkinTyte procedure is non-invasive there is no downtime so you can resume regular activities immediately following treatment. You can also apply makeup and sunscreen after each session.
What results should you expect?
Results vary from patient to patient. The SkinTyte procedure is recommended for patients who desire moderate, noticeable skin improvement without having to undergo surgery. Full results often take up to four months as the collagen foundation of your skin is rebuilt and strengthened.
